Sports Medicine (3).jpgTo keep you in the game, it is advisable to consult a sports medicine specialist before you experience an injury. Taking injury prevention precautions should not be put on the back burner. Don’t wait until you are injured. Following good prescriptions from the Multidisciplinary Sports Medicine Team at Spine and Sports Medicine will escalate your injury prevention plan.

Sports Medicine Doctor

Staying in the game requires more than just eating right and taking your vitamins. – Dr. Brian Kessler, Medical Director of Spine and Sports Medicine.

Wear and tear on your body to play a sport pain may seem normal. But, normal pain does not set in and keep you from moving freely.

  • Don’t Get Injured
  • Look Good in Your Own Skin

Boost Your Athletic Performance

New Yorkers are athletes. Taking preventative measures in your sport to make sure that your body is strong and stable keeps life moving and pain free. While you are running at top speed, make sure to watch for the unforeseen. When a part of your body calls out to you – listen. Don’t keep pushing and pulling. Rest.

Don’t Get Injured

You don’t want to injure yourself during practice or the game. There is no reason you should only hurt a little. Normal sporting activity calls for bumps and bruises that do not inflict pain limiting your performance. To become educated and trained about knowing when discomfort becomes intolerable pain, you must change up your normal athlete routine.

Your body contains some superpowers. Those are resilience and the capacity to heal properly. Don’t let your fear of injury – or recurrent injury – change up your gait. Improper performance certainly will lead to another injury. Learn to correctly apply pressure and stress to your body in order to prevent injury or speed up healing.

Look Good in Your Own Skin

Improving your training and exercise program will not only boost your performance. An injury preventative plan will improve your physique.

  • Be a versatile force
  • Be a powerful mover
  • Don’t fear injury
  • Experience whole body heal
  • Look good – inside and out
